Brooklyn Half Marathon is on Saturday! The start is conveniently located just outside my front door. Waking up at 6:30 for a race that starts at 7:30 seems totally awesome; a week and a half ago I had to get up at 4 for the NJ half—which started at 6:45—in order to drive to the start and worry about parking.
I am also excited about actually running the race. FLATBUSH CLOSED TO TRAFFIC! Finish at Coney Island!
